This is great! Thanks for sharing. It's a good reminder I think I needed.

I would also say that it's ok to not be ready to leave tutorial purgatory yet. If you're happy following guides and getting overviews of cool technologies, and you don't have a pressing need or desire to build something, don't feel like you are lame for liking to follow along with tutorials. :)

Nice one. I love to code just to know what's happening in the industry. I'm more of an enthusiast than anything. I love tutorials. But true tutorials in and of themselves don't make you a developer. You have to build stuff.
